    Title: ``Privacy of Consumer Financial Information,'' OMB Control 
No. 3038-0055--Extension. This is a request for extension of a 
currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: The passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and 
Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act''), Public Law 111-203, 124 
Stat. 1376 (2010), broadened the Commission's regulatory authority 
under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (``GLB Act'') to cover two new 
entities: Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants, in addition to 
Futures Commission Merchants, Commodity Trading Advisors, Commodity 
Pool Operators, and Introducing Brokers. Specifically, amendments to 
the GLB Act found in section 1093 of the Dodd-Frank Act, reaffirmed the 
Commission's authority to promulgate regulations to require entities 
that are subject to the Commission's jurisdiction to provide certain 
privacy protections for consumer financial information. These 
regulations were later extended to Retail Foreign Exchange Dealers.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for the 
Commission's regulations were published on December 30, 1981. See 46 FR 
63035 (Dec. 30, 1981). The Federal Register notice with a 60-day 
comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information 
was published on October 23, 2014 (79 FR 63384).
    No comments have been received.
    Burden statement: The respondent burden for this collection is 
estimated to average 0.24 hours per response.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: 110.
    Estimated number of responses: 20.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 528 hours.
    Frequency of collection: Annual.
